Michael Sy Lim, Entertainment blogger behind Fashion Pulis speaks up on Tuesday defended himself from the P11-million libel charges filed against him by celebrity stylist Liz Uy.
In a statement posted on his blog and social media accounts, Lim said, “It is sad that a public figure such as Liz Uy decides to file a case against me. Her feelings of being wronged by my post [were] based on a common truthful observation about her body of work relative to Maine Mendoza of AlDub which many people other than me also pointed out.”
According to news report, Uy filed online libel and grave slander case against Lim on Monday after Fashion Pulis posted on his blog that Uy maid Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza wear a “recycled” Francis Libiran gown during the show’s “Tamang Panahon” event at the Philippine Arena.
“I will fight this case with courage because I have no malicious intent. My lawyer is also studying the filing of counter charges for malicious prosecution and damages for this suppression of our freedom of the press and expression,” he said.
